Naming Compounds and chemical formulas.?
I need help on my science homewor.d
Name the type of bond (ionic bond, ionic bond w/ transition metals, or covalent) and the name of the formula.
Write the chemical formulas for the following compounds.
I have most of the answers but I just want to check them. Thanks!

NaF = I think it is Sodium Floride and it is an Ionic Compound yes C3H8 = propane and is Covalent yes BaCl2 = Barium diChloride and is Ionic barium chloride (Only use Greek prefixes with compounds of two nonmetals) Ba3P2 = Barium diphosphide and is Ionic barium phosphide (See above), and it's more covalent than ionic NaO2 = Sodium Oxide and is covalent NaO2 is sodium superoxide, rare. ionic P8I3 = Phosphorous Iodide and is Covalent Never heard of ti. I think you have a typo. There is PI3, phosphorous triiodide, which is covalent. NH3 = Nitrogen Hydride and is Covalent NH3 is ammonia, and its covalent Na2S = Sodium Sulfide and is ionic yes, but its only about 50/50 ionic/covalent Now for this next set he gave us the Name of the compound and I have to figure out the chemical formula and the type of compound. Sodium Oxide = Na02 = Covalent No Na2O, more ionic Trisulfur Dioxide = S302 = Covalent Yes, but not a common compound Pentane = C5H12 = Covalent yes Calcium Nitride = CaN2 = Ionic Ca3N2 is calcium nitride Potassium Carbide = KC = Ionic K2C2 is potassium carbide. carbide ion is C2^2-
